Today's Outfit - Astrid Boucle Jacket with Jeans







I don't normally wear Jeans to work - unless it's before a long weekend but my staff and I had plans to go out for drinks Friday evening after work so Jeans was simply apropos. Although I was wearing jeans, I still think that the final look could still be considered Friday Business Casual. What do you think?

cute cute! love the lulus with this jacket. how do you find the lulus run on you? it seems like everyone else says the lulus run big and they sized down...

Thank you The Outfit of the day and Lake Nokomis for your kind words.

Starla729, with respect to the Lulus, I didn't hear that I had to size down. I normally wear a size 8 and the 8s are what I got and they fit fine. So, to answer your question, no I didn't size down. :)

Thank you for noticing the "not so droopy" Droppy Flower on the Boucle Astrid jacket. Did you check out my post from December? I had written a post about how to revive the droopy flower. I haven't done anything to it since I ironed, steamed and reattached the pin. I take it off after I wear it each time and pin it on when I wear the jacket and the flower is looked mighty fine. I'm quite pleased with what I did with it. :)

thanks crew girl in canada for your words about the lulus!
and to answer your question, yes I did catch your post in Dec about reviving the droopy flower and it didn't seem like a bad process at all! thanks for sharing it. can't believe you haven't had to revive it anymore since you got it. lol. it just needed a little TLC :)

I love this outfit on you! After seeing how well the shoes go with your outfits, I wish I had ordered the Lulu's in the pink color too. :)
